[3.0] "He certainly wasn't good by any stretch but he had a great energy. Boring move set. Terrible promos but he had a few matches worth watching. He had a great match against Randy Savage. Surprisingly Warrior Vs Hogan was watchable (it was certainly a miracle) and of course a good showing against Rick Rude."

[7.0] "It's really hard not to go higher on my score. Ultimate Warrior is a performer who inspires me, excites me, and does just what a performer should and that is entertain me. The guy wasn't that good in the ring, that's very true. There's a reason why most of his matches were less than 10 minutes long. However, it worked for his character who was full of energy, power, and charisma. He looked like he would destroy his opponent in 3 minutes. He spoke and you listened. He ran down to the ring, breathing in and out, looking like a mad man and you were caught up in his presence. He has the physique of a Greek god. He had sparkles in his eyes. The man was passionate and intense and one of the most captivating characters and performers in WWE history. No matter if he were going out to squash a guy in a 3 minute match or wrestle Hulk Hogan or Randy Savage for over 10 minutes, the guy was just fun to watch. He's one of my favorites. I will never try to say he's a very good wrestler, but I will say he's the most captivating and entertaining guy of his era. He doesn't even have many stand out matches, but he always stands out no matter what. Thanks for everything Warrior."

[7.0] "Would love to give him a higher rating because he is my all time favorite, but being objective, the guy was just not a good wrestler. extremely limited moveset, known to be dangerous to work with (many of his peers have complained about his lack of professionalism) and worst of all, flaky, would just simply no show whenever he felt like it. BUT his gimmick, attire, and promos were all awesome. yes I know his promos were gibberish that's why I loved them cuz the guy was just batshit crazy. Like I said, I want to rate him higher but he was just not a very good wrestler. if it wasn't for his epic gimmick and being permanently over for eternity he'd get a much lower rating."

[8.0] "Love him or hate him, The Ultimate Warrior made wrestling entertaining. Warrior began to cut his teeth in WCCW as The Dingo Warrior; earning both the Texas Heavyweight Championship and WCCW's World Tag Team Championship with Lance Von Erich shortly after joining on. This helped Warrior attract the attention of the WWE, who brought him on to become the next WWE superstar. Though his ability to work safely was in question, Warrior became a popular WWE Intercontiental Champion due to his charisma alone. As the 1980's turned into the 1990's, Warrior had his "moment" at WrestleMania VI where he defeated Hulk Hogan to secure the WWE World Championship. Yet as his star was on the rise, Warrior found himself in disagreements with the WWE over finances and was fired after SummerSlam '91. Though Warrior was brought back for WM VIII, he was entered into embarrassing programs before leaving again by year's end. Warrior wrestled for the WWE a final time in 1996, but problems arising from finances saw him depart once more. Warrior then went to WCW to feud with Hogan, but the results were ill received by the fans and somewhat soured his legacy. Just the same, Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at WM XXX; where he managed to eulogize himself on RAW not 24 hours before suffering a fatal heart attack. Though his passing is viewed in sadness, only Warrior was capable of eulogizing The Ultimate Warrior - And both will live on in the Heavens FOREVER!"

[10.0] "One of a kind, maybe the greatest character pro wrestling has ever seen. The intensity he brought to his matches from the minute he exploded down the ramp way is unmatched. Was never going to chain wrestle and put on a clinic but his matches were always entertaining"

I feel bad for being negative on someone who died but I juswt hate it when people pretend that he was a great worker."

[0.0] "When I see those "10/10 rating" comments it's really hard not to laugh. So here we go : an absolutely jerk backstage, only cared about making money. His promos were awful and if you managed to sit through his entire backstage promo, you are the man. And of course, his in ring work is something I have to mention. Atomic Drop? Shoulder Block? Gorilla Press Slam and his shitty finisher - a splash. Vince gave him a chance to became a next Hogan and he failed. This guy is a great example that in WWF/E you can be a jerk, shitty talker, shitty wrestler, but if you are a great bodybuilder you will be a champion. The biggest jerk of all time and the most overrated wrestler of all time."

[4.0] "poor in ring skills led to poor matches. his poor mic skills also attribute to this rating. he had a decent character and to his credit he always got over with the crowd but as far as actually raw talent is concerned. he had very little"

[2.0] "I don't like to speak ill of the dead, but I'll be completely honest with everyone that I never cared for this guy. I hated his character when I was a young child and I honestly thought he was an idiot. I'm sorry for his family that have to go on without him, but I'll be honest... He did not have much talent at all."
